Question

A random sample of 13 students were asked how long it took them to complete a certain exam. The mean length of time was 107.3 minutes, with a standard deviation of 82.5 minutes. Find the lower bound of the 90% confidence interval for the true mean length of time it would take for all students to complete the exam.

Round to one decimal place (for example: 108.1). Write only a number as your answer. Do not write any units.

Answer #1

Given that,

= 107.3

s =82.5

n = 13

Degrees of freedom = df = n - 1 = 13- 1 = 12

At 90% confidence level the t is ,

= 1 - 90% = 1 - 0.90 = 0.1

= 0.10

t
,df = t0.10,12 = **1.356** ( using student t
table)

Margin of error = E = t,df * (s /n)

=**1.356** * (82.5 /
13) = 31.03

The 90% confidence interval estimate of the population mean is,

- E

107.3 - 31.03

76.27

lower bound=76.3

A random sample of 13 students were asked how long it took them
to complete a certain exam. The mean length of time was 117.6
minutes, with a standard deviation of 69.2 minutes. Find the lower
bound of the 90% confidence interval for the true mean length of
time it would take for all students to complete the exam. Round to
one decimal place (for example: 108.1). Write only a number as your
answer. Do not write any units.

A study of the number of minutes taken by top achieving students
to complete a statistics assignment was carried out. A random
sample of 50 top achieving students were asked how long the

taken by the students was found to be 75 minutes with a 95%
confidence interval of (60, 90). For each of the following state if

13. A 2007 Gallup poll randomly sampled 1019 people, and asked
them how long it took them to commute to work each day. The sample
mean one-way commute time was 22.8 minutes with a standard
deviation of 17.9 minutes. A transportation engineer claims that
the mean commute time is greater than 20 minutes. Do the data
provide convincing evidence that the engineer’s claim is true? Use
